It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Ain't This a Kick in the Head!

In my travels tonight I came across this.

This blog, ironically titled "real democracy" posted David Swanson's call to arms to swarm the White House should McCain win on Tuesday as his win will be illegitimate.  (I hope your bags are's looking more and more like you're going to need 'em)...y'all can google it if you like.  It is a head trip.

Hmmm…let’s see. Obama supporters fire bombed a McCain supporter’s house. Obama supporters carved KKK into a McCain supporter’s car, urinated on it, and burned an American flag on it. An Obama supporter in New York beat a female McCain supporter with a wooden pole on the street in broad daylight…

Reports of these types of attacks by Obama supporters are cropping up across the country.
ACORN is registering hundreds of thousands of illegal voters, many of whom are having their ballots thrown out. ACORN is operating in more than 20 states and complaints and fraud have been documented in virtually every single one. The Obama campaign with the help of the DNC rigged the roll call vote at the convention in Denver. I was there. I spoke to a number of delegates.  Many said they were threatened by Obama people, party leaders, etc. It has been well documented that Obama bused in out of state supporters to the caucuses who voted in them illegally, threatened Clinton supporters, tore up and stole Clinton sign up sheets, intimidated elderly voters…so just what the hell are you people talking about? Your fascist candidate’s nomination is as fraudulent as a three dollar bill so take your threats and park ‘em where the sun don’t shine.

If Obama wins in any state where ACORN is operating I hope he challenges; even if McCain wins the election. Sick fascists like you and your candidate are the reason why the Constitution is in tatters. Do us a favor…move to Russia and spend the rest of your life voting for Putin surrogates and leave democracy to those of us who love it.

You claim to be about real democracy and in search of hypocrites?  Take a look in the mirror.

The zombie delusional mind of a bot in the matrix.

What the Deuce?!? Pampers' Lawyer Invasion of the Ballot Snatchers

It's not enough that Big Brother Barry got the fix on the nomination.  It's not enough that his partners in slime at ACORN flooded the registration rolls with fraudulent papers (after 30 years of working to bring down our economy with subprime loans).  It's not enough that the Ohio Secretary of State is working day and night to put the fix in for Pampers in her state, and that the Supreme Court violated the Constitution of the United States, and the Ohio State Constitution (unless the Ohio State Constitution grants the right to vote to people with illegal registrations), by allowing Secretary Brunner to knowingly conceal fraudulent voter registration information from Ohio's 88 counties.  Now when you go to the polls you will most likely be surrounded by Pampers' Lawyers.

In Florida alone there will 5000 of these maggots.  Florida state law makes it clear that these people are barred from interacting with voters.  Now knowing that the Obama campaign had tables with their volunteers in Indiana polling stations I think it's safe to say that these eyes and ears for the Obama campaign will most likely try and skirt the law any way they can.  

You dear friends have a mission.  When you vote on Tuesday, don't cast your ballot and run out.  Stick around.  Mill about.  Watch what's going on.  Bring a video camera, camera phone, digital camera, tape recorder, etc.  Document any irregularities you see.  If you see someone approaching a voter inside your precinct ask them who they are and why they are talking to a voter.  Ask them for I.D.  If they refuse, find a poll worker and call out the violator.  If the poll worker fails to take action contact your local McCain campaign office.  They will know doubt have lawyers on the ground as well.

In North Carolina there have been reports of "translators" going into the booths with Latino voters.  There are directions in Spanish on the ballots.  No translators are required.  So keep an eye out on that as well.

It is in your best interest to assume that no one at your precinct will help you so be prepared with phone numbers for your local McCain office, as well as your county and state board of elections.  

Only you can prevent forest fires...only you.

Douche TV

So tonight is the GreatBigFeelGoodAboutVotingForALyingFascistAsshatWhoHatesAmerica Informercial brought to you buy ACORN; all the fraud that's fit to commit.

As I'm sure most of you can guess I will not be watching the lie parade.  I will instead be generating some positive energy prior to watching my Phillies hopefully wrap up the World Series tonight.  

There have been some suggestions by my colleagues that they should watch ABC or not watch, or whatever.  This is my two cents.  Instead of doing something anti do something pro.  If you have a lover, and they're with you during the infomercial, I'm going to suggest making hot and sweaty love with them.  There's been so much anger, hate, race baiting, and sexism that's been thrown at us that I think it's time we generated a concentrated dose of love.  So put on some Barry White, Van Morrison, or whatever else is appropriate, grab the one you love, rip their clothes off, and get it on.

Why the hell not?

Here's another Morrison and the boys with a little inspiration for perspiration.

Did I mention Pampers is gonna lose?

Last Stand for Democracy? Don't Surrender! Stand and Fight! Help Put This Ad On The Air!

At the end of the Democratic Primary season, this was the situation:
Popular Vote
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton: 17,857,446, (48.04%)
Senator Barack Obama: 17,584,649 (47.31%)
Pledged delegates
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton: 1,730.5 (39.17%)
Senator Barack Obama: 1,747.5 (39.55%)

Then, for no apparent good reason, in June Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosis decided THEY, not the delegates chosen by the electorate and not the superdelegates appointed via proper party procedure, were going to decide who would represent the top of the ticket for the general election. Now that same leadership wants YOU to legitimize their undemocratic and unprincipled methods by putting their selected candidate into the White House on November 4.

But WE can say no to the subversion of democratic principles within the Democratic Party. We can say no with our votes and by urging our fellow Democrats to pay attention to the particulars of the candidate Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi selected to represent the Democratic Party.

Put this ad on the air and let America know that our voices count.

Over the next 24 hours and across the internet, we as a community will urgently be raising money to run edgy and persuasive ads made by Democrats in key battleground states. Generous contributors have pledged $500 in matching funds. Your voice counts. Please contribute now


Or go to Democrats For Principle Before Party - The Denver Group's general election website, where you can view other ads the group is running:

Our Nation Already Has A Purpose Pampers

Just to demonstrate how fucked up the 2008 election has been let me state the most bizarre thing that has happened to me personally.  I am in agreement with Rush Limbaugh.  Yes, you read that correctly, I am in agreement with Rush Limbaugh.  

I have been listening to quite a bit of conservative radio lately to get a glimpse as to how the right is dealing with the Pampers phenomenon.  Does it surprise anyone that they find themselves facing the same Pampers bullshit that we Clinton supporters did in the primaries?  The arrogance, the fawning media turning a blind eye, while offering ludicrous rationalizations for Pampers' history; his lies about his biography, his associations with terrorists, bigots, ACORN, homophobes and felons, how he financed his campaign, how he took money from lobbyists and pacs...

The Right has barely scratched the surface on the issues of caucus and voter fraud, the rigged convention, and the general Pampers' rape of democratic process.  I just keep shaking my head wondering why these people weren't paying more attention to the the Democrat primaries.  They would have seen all of this coming.

But today Rush and I were of one mind and let me tell you something, it was really fucking weird.  Rush was talking about a speech Obama gave as part of his "closing argument."  At one point Pampers said, "That's what's been lost these last eight years - our sense of common purpose; of higher purpose. And that's what we need to restore right now."

When I heard those words the first thing that came into my head is that we don't need an asshat politician to bring this nation a higher purpose.  Our nation's purpose is clearly and eloquently laid out in the Declaration of Independence.  The purpose of the United States is to stand as a country that defends the unalienable, indefeasible right of all people to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.  There is no higher purpose for any nation.  Within seconds Limbaugh agreed with me.  Honestly, now that I think about it, I shouldn't be all that surprised.  Regardless of our politics, Rush and I have something in common.  We are both Americans who love our country, and believe in what it represents.  

I have argued on this blog in recent days that our government is not operating with Constitutional legitimacy, but that does not change the fact that our Constitution guarantees our freedoms and liberties.  It also grants us the right to alter how our government functions so that it better serves as a protector of said liberties and freedoms.  It is up to us to exercise those rights.  

I find it highly ironic that an anti-democratic criminal like Pampers promises to bring our nation a higher purpose.  What higher purpose can an anti-democratic criminal bring to our nation exactly; his socialist plan for the redistribution of wealth and Ayers' vision of turning our schools into the engine of revolution?   To crush democracy and dissent in favor of his own vision and his lust for power?  Is his higher purpose to see us become a fascist nation?  It must be as he, his campaign, and the Democrat Party have used fascist methods to give him the nomination, stifle any voices rising in opposition, and suppress the votes of the American people.  That is not a higher purpose.  That is not unifying the nation.  That is not change I believe in.

Our nation has a purpose.  It does not need to be changed.  Should We The People stand up to make our democracy more participatory so that we carry more of the burden in ensuring that our liberties are preserved?  Absolutely.  

Should we elect a man who thinks that his own vision of our purpose is higher than Jefferson's, than Adams' (John, Sam, and Abigail), than Franklin's?  These are people who literally put their lives on the line to create this country so that there would be a place where human beings' unalienable rights were declared and protected.  What has Pampers done that compares?  Less than nothing.  If anything, his candidacy stands against everything this country has ever stood for save the opportunity to run for public office, including the office of President, an office which he is not constitutionally qualified to hold.

This foul utterance from a proven liar and thug is not his closing argument as his campaign suggests.  It is his final insult in a campaign that has been a mockery of democracy and of our rights and liberties.  I pray that the American electorate is wise and shrewd enough to see that so that after November 4th we need not have to endure more insults from the freshman Senator from Illinois.

And for all you sycophantic Pampers Poopies, whom I loathe as much as your messiah, is this the kind of change you are so desperately fighting for, the abuse of power to crush anyone who questions That One?  Fuck you!

Slogans for the Final Week

In the last week of a presidential election campaign it's anything goes.  The final attacks will be launched in the hopes of scaring the crap out of the voters enough that they vote for the other guy.  To that end I have made a list of advertising messages for the campaigns to employ.

For Pampers:
  1. John McCain:  His farts smell like cheese.
  2. John McCain:  His bald spot contributes to global warming.
  3. John McCain:  He's got bunions.
  4. John McCain:  He sucks your breath while you sleep.

For John McCain:
  1. Barack Obama:  He eats babies.
  2. Barack Obama:  He uses a bidet. 
  3. Barack Obama:  He cross dresses.
  4. Barack Obama:  He loves waffles more than you.  
  5. For the elderly Red Sea Pedestrians in South Florida...Barack Obama:  He likes Wagner.

Fare Thee Well Merl

I am sad to say that Merl Saunders has moved on to the great gig in the sky due to complications from a stroke.  He was 74.  He rocked us, loved us, and shined such a great light.  When they talk about being baptized in holy waters that's what it was like to be in a room where Merl rocked.  You couldn't help but feel good.  Like Garcia, and others, Merl was an avatar who channeled light from somewhere else, and couldn't help it.  

Merl, from my heart, it was a pleasure to have met you, and groove with you in the bars, theaters, in my car...I wish I had seen you more.  You comforted us when our pain was greatest, carved a permanent place for joy in our hearts, and worked for the healing of the world.  I can think of no greater legacy than that.  

Thank you.

The bio from Merl's MySpace page:

MERL SAUNDERS Hammond B3 player Merl Saunders has recorded with numerous renowned artists since the early '70s and has led many of his own dates in a variety of genres from jazz to blues to new age to rock. Born on Valentine's Day, 1934 in San Mateo, CA, Saunders began learning to play the piano at the age of 10. He was a classmate and bandmate of Johnny Mathis through junior high school. Saunders decided on music as a profession after seeing how much fun was had by audience and performers alike at concerts by such musicians as Cab Calloway. He apprenticed early on with Jimmy Smith for a time, and attended various music schools.

Starting in the 1960s, Saunders collaborated on and off with Jerry Garcia, and the Grateful Dead. He also began working as a jazz keyboardist in the early '70s, and since has performed and recorded with Harry Belafonte, Frank Sinatra, Lionel Hampton, Miles Davis, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt and Paul Butterfield. One of his several albums with Jerry Garcia, Blues From the Rainforest, hit the Top 5 of the U.S. Billboard New Age charts in the early '90s.

Saunders runs his own label, Sumertone, which includes much of his catalogue, as does the Fantasy label. In 1998, Saunders released his 20th album as a leader, Merl Saunders With His Funky Friends: Live! (Sumertone), which includes guests Garcia, John Popper (of Blues Travelers) and Trey Anastasio (of Phish). In addition to his active touring schedule, the San Franciscan has also written scores for TV and movies, including Tales From The Crypt, Twilight Zone, Heavy Traffic and Fritz The Cat.

In early 2000, Merl Saunders became the first recipient of the lifetime activist award from a Florida environmentalist group for his environmental activism that goes beyond just the titles of albums like Save the Planet So We'll Have Someplace to Boogie and Blues from the Rainforest. Later that fall, Saunders released Struggling Man.

In 2002 Merl suffered a stroke and has been recovering with the help of family and friends.

Merl Saunders passed away this morning, October 24, 2008 from complications related to the stroke which he suffered in 2002. The family appreciates all the well wishes.

A message from the Saunders family:

Merl Saunders stood for music and love - his smile alone told you that.
We loved him very much - and we know that you, his fans, did too.
Sad as we are to lose him, we're very aware of being comforted by the affection
coming from all those touched by that smile and that wonderful music.
He was a special man, a beautiful companion, father, grandfather, and family patriarch,
and the proof of that spirit is in the way you've reached out to us at his passing.

From our hearts, thank you. And we know Merl thanks you too.

Keep on keepin'on,
The Saunders Family

In lieu of flowers the Saunders family asks that donations be made to the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic or The Rainforest Action Network.

And now you shall rock!

Our Social Contract: Null and Void

UPDATE:  I have just read at Texas Hill Country that the President has ordered the Attorney General to investigate the new voter registrations in Ohio.  I know that this decision is 100% due to partisan politics, but at least the Executive has put up a check against the Supreme Court's unconstitutional decision handed down on 17 October 2008.

This is an excerpt of a comment I received yesterday from my sister liliam.
I am so fearful (I know, we should not express fear) that the upcoming vote will be so flawed. Again, there are no checks and balances. The media is complicit in the crap. So many turncoats exist in the government. Citizen attempts to sue for information are thwarted by technicalities (not just Berg, but the Acorn suit in Ohio and who knows what else?) Where are our benefactors? I am so very frustrated. We work for McCain, as it is the only option, I believe, but if the vote is illegitimate, then what?
Lililam's support of Senator Clinton was unwavering.  Her love of her liberties and our republic is stronger.  Like me, I imagine that she was surprised just how devoted she really is to the guiding principles that our nation's founders engraved into the heart of this nation...with the consent of the governed.  She is not alone in her fear.  Many of us across this nation are afraid.  I count myself among them.  Not because we might see Barack Pampers Obama be President (I am confident that the silent majority will step up and prevent that), but because at this moment we are without a constitutionally legitimate government.

The relationship between the people and government was articulated by Thomas Jefferson in 
the Declaration of Independence: 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

This is the illustration of John Locke's concept of the social contract; that the government is only legitimate due to its being endowed with its powers by the PEOPLE.  When the government is no longer serving the needs of the people, and is operating in direct contradiction to the needs, desires, and safety of the people, I consider that government despotic.  Under such circumstances the PEOPLE are OBLIGATED to dissolve or alter that government.  Do not mistake me when I say that we are at this point.  I do not speak in jest.  All three branches of government have violated their oaths of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.  I have illustrated this fact here before, but will do so again.

The President, the head of our executive branch of government, has suspended habeas corpus.  He has ordered that our phones be tapped without the issuing of warrants.  The Congress voted this past summer to endorse this program, and grant retroactive immunity to the telecom companies that are complicit in this scheme.

According to Amendment 4, ratified on 15 December 1791:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment 5, ratified on 15 December 1791:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
The Executive is in violation of both the 4th and 5th amendments.  Congress has violated the 4th amendment.  Both the Executive and the Legislature are in violation of the social contract.

On October 17, 2008 the Supreme Court of the United States overturned the ruling of the 6th District Court of Appeals that ordered Ohio Secretary of State, Democrat Jennifer Brunner, to double check and verify the identities of hundreds of thousands of newly registered voters, many of whom were fraudulent and submitted by the Obama voter registration/voter fraud machine known as ACORN, and provide that information to Ohio's 88 counties.  The SCOTUS did not rule based on constitutional premise, nor on the merits of the case brought before the Court of Appeals, nor on whether the Help America Vote Act was being properly enforced, but on the Court's supposition that the Republican Party would not be successful in arguing that, "Congress has authorized the District Court to enforce Section 303 of the Help America Vote Act in an action brought by a private litigant to justify the issuance of a temporary restraining order."

Because of this ruling, the Democrat Secretary of State of Ohio is going to knowingly allow fraudulent voter registrations to stand thus violating the sanctity of the vote of the citizens of Ohio.  It is true that the Constitution does not explicitly ensure the right to vote, but it does detail how the right to vote cannot be denied.  The Constitution leaves the qualifications for voters to the states.  There is nothing in the Ohio State Constitution that guarantees the right to vote to anyone who submits false registration information.  In fact, false registrants who have voted have had their ballots thrown out.  It should then be assumed by the Courts that allowing for the possiblity of false registrants voting is in violation of the Constitution of the State of Ohio.  The Supreme Court knowingly failed to rule on the issue at hand, ruling on the sanctity of the vote of the citizens of Ohio, violating its oath of office.  It is in violation of the social contract.

Now we come to the case of Phillip Berg.  He filed a suit in Philadelphia Federal District Court in August challenging the  constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the office of the President.  Over the weekend, Judge Surrick dismissed the case, stating in his opinion, "
"If, through the political process, Congress determines that citizens, voters, or party members should police the Constitution's eligibility requirements for the Presidency, then it is free to pass laws conferring standing on individuals like Plaintiff. Until that time, voters do not have standing to bring the sort of challenge that Plaintiff attempts to bring in the Amended Complaint."
In his response to the dismissal Berg stated the following:
This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?
Make sure that you understand what the Federal District Court has said:  The citizens of the United States do not have the right to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States.  I have quoted John Adams on this issue before and I will cite him again.  Adams made it quite clear that we have an undeniable and indefeasible right to know the character of those who would serve in our government.  An indefeasible right is a right we possess, regardless of whether or not it is granted to us in the Constitution.  It is our right as human beings.  The Federal District Court is violating a right it has no purview to violate.  The judiciary has violated the social contract.

My friends the time has come to exercise our unalienable rights as Americans, and as human beings, to alter or dissolve the federal government.  Let me be clear:  I am not calling for an armed rebellion against our government.  

It is our sacred, unalienable, indefeasible right to be governed by a structure that effects our Safety and Happiness.  It is our unalienable and indefeasible right to dissolve or alter our government so that we will have a body of governance that does in fact effect our Safety and Happiness.  Neither the President, Legislature, nor the Courts have the power to prevent, impinge, or restrict any actions we take to do so through democratic means, so that is what we must do.  The time has come for the citizens of the United States to begin deliberations on the altering of the federal government, creating citizen based political bodies that will ensure our elected officials operate within the the law, and work to ensure our liberty, not their power and largess (I see no alternative to this solution save by the actions of the next President by reinstating the right of habeas corpus, and the ending of warrantless wiretapping; the actions of the Judiciary is another matter). Amendments 9 and 10 stand to ensure that our power to do so cannot be denied.

Amendment 9, ratified 15 December 1791:
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Amendment 10, ratified 15 December 1791:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
It is my hope that when John McCain wins the election, seeing that he is dedicated to the enforcement of the Constitution of the United States, (at least he has made the case that this is so), he will join us in these deliberations, while moving to make sure that our current elected bodies and judiciary uphold the Constitution,  and works to immediately correct their violations, and the violations of the previous President.  I think it is safe to say that Barack Obama would absolutely not do this as his candidacy has been almost entirely about violating the rights of the citizens of the United States.  I firmly believe that the survival of our democratic republic depends on the election on November 4th, and the willingness of the citizenry to take the necessary democratic action to rebuild our governmental structures so that we never come to this point again, and the United States of America can continue to flourish as a democratic republic that not only protects the rights of its citizens, but once again stand as an example of how government can exist to preserve, protect, and defend unalienable human rights.

You Have Been Served

Since the 2008 election cycle began I have been begging for election officials to change the format not only of the debates, but the party candidate selection process as well.  For the debates I have suggested themed formats:

  1. Shakespeare Night:  Candidates dress in Elizabethan attire and give responses in iambic pentameter.
  2. Movie Night:  Candidates dress as their favorite film characters and deliver their responses in that character's voice.
  3. Slap Fight: I think you know how that goes.
  4. History Night:  Candidates dress as their favorite person from history.
  5. Super Hero Night:  Again, obvious.
After this series of debates there is a national primary day for each party.  The top two winners then compete head to head for the nomination, engaging in a series of challenges:

  1. Current events quiz not unlike Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, but without the sycophants from National Pampers Radio.
  2. Trivial Pursuit
  3. Head to head game of Risk
  4. Feats of Strength
  5. Spelling Bee
  6. Talent Show
The candidate who accumulates the most points from all 6 challenges is the nominee.  Tie breakers will be settled by jello wrestling; best of 3 falls.

When it comes to the general election we can vote based on the candidates' positions, which are often just endless streams of flowing diarrhea of the mouth (hat tip to Pampers for raising the bar on that score), or we could vote based on this:

Friday Night Kitty

We get unlimited laughs from this Stealth Kitty.  God knows smiles are in short supply so enjoy.

Riddle Me This!

This is the latest ad from Democrats for Principle Before Party/The Denver Group that will be running in Ohio this weekend.  It will also be run next weekend with three more in Ohio and Florida.  The Democrat nominee is illegitimate, having been handed the nomination in a corrupted fascist process that failed to exercise the will of the people as expressed in their votes by delegate selection.

Do not reward the Democrat Party's corruption.  Do not reward the corruption of their false nominee.  On November 4th vote against Barack Obama.

A Must Read From Orson Scott Card; Democrat

This open letter from Uncle Orson from the Rhino Times in Greensboro, NC says it all. This should be required reading in every high school, every college, every newspaper, magazine, and TV network. In fact, it should be read by every American of voting age. Spread it around. There are some humans still out there amongst the sea of hacks and whores that is the world of journalism today.  To praise Uncle Orson for having the balls to tell the truth comment here.

Would the Last Honest Reporter Please Turn On the Lights?

by Orson Scott Card

October 20, 2008
An open letter to the local daily paper -- almost every local daily paper in America:

I remember reading All the President's Men and thinking: That's journalism. You do what it takes to get the truth and you lay it before the public, because the public has a right to know.

This housing crisis didn't come out of nowhere. It was not a vague emanation of the evil Bush administration.

It was a direct result of the political decision, back in the late 1990s, to loosen the rules of lending so that home loans would be more accessible to poor people. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were authorized to approve risky loans.

What is a risky loan? It's a loan that the recipient is likely not to be able to repay.

The goal of this rule change was to help the poor -- which especially would help members of minority groups. But how does it help these people to give them a loan that they can't repay? They get into a house, yes, but when they can't make the payments, they lose the house -- along with their credit rating.

They end up worse off than before.

This was completely foreseeable and in fact many people did foresee it. One political party, in Congress and in the executive branch, tried repeatedly to tighten up the rules. The other party blocked every such attempt and tried to loosen them.

Furthermore, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were making political contributions to the very members of Congress who were allowing them to make irresponsible loans. (Though why quasi-federal agencies were allowed to do so baffles me. It's as if the Pentagon were allowed to contribute to the political campaigns of congressmen who support increasing their budget.)

Isn't there a story here? Doesn't journalism require that you who produce our daily paper tell the truth about who brought us to a position where the only way to keep confidence in our economy was a $700 billion bailout? Aren't you supposed to follow the money and see which politicians were benefiting personally from the deregulation of mortgage lending?

I have no doubt that if these facts had pointed to the Republican Party or to John McCain as the guilty parties, you would be treating it as a vast scandal. "Housing-gate," no doubt. Or "Fannie-gate."

Instead, it was Sen. Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank, both Democrats, who denied that there were any problems, who refused Bush administration requests to set up a regulatory agency to watch over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and who were still pushing for these agencies to go even further in promoting subprime mortgage loans almost up to the minute they failed.

As Thomas Sowell points out in a essay entitled "Do Facts Matter?" ( "Alan Greenspan warned them four years ago. So did the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers to the President. So did Bush's Secretary of the Treasury."

These are facts. This financial crisis was completely preventable. The party that blocked any attempt to prevent it was ... the Democratic Party. The party that tried to prevent it was ... the Republican Party.

Yet when Nancy Pelosi accused the Bush administration and Republican deregulation of causing the crisis, you in the press did not hold her to account for her lie. Instead, you criticized Republicans who took offense at this lie and refused to vote for the bailout!

What? It's not the liar, but the victims of the lie who are to blame?

Now let's follow the money ... right to the presidential candidate who is the number two recipient of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae.

And after Fred Raines, the CEO of Fannie Mae who made $90 million while running it into the ground, was fired for his incompetence, one presidential candidate's campaign actually consulted him for advice on housing.

If that presidential candidate had been John McCain, you would have called it a major scandal and we would be getting stories in your paper every day about how incompetent and corrupt he was.

But instead, that candidate was Barack Obama, and so you have buried this story, and when the McCain campaign dared to call Raines an "adviser" to the Obama campaign -- because that campaign had sought his advice -- you actually let Obama's people get away with accusing McCain of lying, merely because Raines wasn't listed as an official adviser to the Obama campaign.

You would never tolerate such weasely nit-picking from a Republican.

If you who produce our local daily paper actually had any principles, you would be pounding this story, because the prosperity of all Americans was put at risk by the foolish, short-sighted, politically selfish and possibly corrupt actions of leading Democrats, including Obama.

If you who produce our local daily paper had any personal honor, you would find it unbearable to let the American people believe that somehow Republicans were to blame for this crisis.

There are precedents. Even though President Bush and his administration never said that Iraq sponsored or was linked to 9/11, you could not stand the fact that Americans had that misapprehension -- so you pounded us with the fact that there was no such link. (Along the way, you created the false impression that Bush had lied to them and said that there was a connection.)

If you had any principles, then surely right now, when the American people are set to blame President Bush and John McCain for a crisis they tried to prevent, and are actually shifting to approve of Barack Obama because of a crisis he helped cause, you would be laboring at least as hard to correct that false impression.

Your job, as journalists, is to tell the truth. That's what you claim you do, when you accept people's money to buy or subscribe to your paper.

But right now, you are consenting to or actively promoting a big fat lie -- that the housing crisis should somehow be blamed on Bush, McCain and the Republicans. You have trained the American people to blame everything bad -- even bad weather -- on Bush, and they are responding as you have taught them to.

If you had any personal honor, each reporter and editor would be insisting on telling the truth -- even if it hurts the election chances of your favorite candidate.

Because that's what honorable people do. Honest people tell the truth even when they don't like the probable consequences. That's what honesty means. That's how trust is earned.

Barack Obama is just another politician, and not a very wise one. He has revealed his ignorance and naivete time after time -- and you have swept it under the rug, treated it as nothing.

Meanwhile, you have participated in the borking of Sarah Palin, reporting savage attacks on her for the pregnancy of her unmarried daughter -- while you ignored the story of John Edwards' own adultery for many months.

So I ask you now: Do you have any standards at all? Do you even know what honesty means?

Is getting people to vote for Barack Obama so important that you will throw away everything that journalism is supposed to stand for?

You might want to remember the way the National Organization of Women (NOW) threw away their integrity by supporting Bill Clinton despite his well-known pattern of sexual exploitation of powerless women. Who listens to NOW anymore? We know they stand for nothing; they have no principles.

That's where you are right now.

It's not too late. You know that if the situation were reversed, and the truth would damage McCain and help Obama, you would be moving heaven and earth to get the true story out there.

If you want to redeem your honor, you will swallow hard and make a list of all the stories you would print if it were McCain who had been getting money from Fannie Mae, McCain whose campaign had consulted with its discredited former CEO, McCain who had voted against tightening its lending practices.

Then you will print them, even though every one of those true stories will point the finger of blame at the reckless Democratic Party, which put our nation's prosperity at risk so they could feel good about helping the poor, and lay a fair share of the blame at Obama's door.

You will also tell the truth about John McCain: that he tried, as a senator, to do what it took to prevent this crisis. You will tell the truth about President Bush: that his administration tried more than once to get Congress to regulate lending in a responsible way.

This was a Congress-caused crisis, beginning during the Clinton administration, with Democrats leading the way into the crisis and blocking every effort to get out of it in a timely fashion.

If you at our local daily newspaper continue to let Americans believe -- and vote as if -- President Bush and the Republicans caused the crisis, then you are joining in that lie.

If you do not tell the truth about the Democrats -- including Barack Obama -- and do so with the same energy you would use if the miscreants were Republicans -- then you are not journalists by any standard.

You're just the public relations machine of the Democratic Party, and it's time you were all fired and real journalists brought in, so that we can actually have a daily newspaper in our city.

A Road To Nowhere

Here's a tidbit that came across my inbox from Ms Placed Democrat:  Ben Bernanke endorsed Obama.  The patients are officially in charge of the asylum.  It was fucked enough when Colin Powell endorsed Pampers over the weekend (and that Pampers, the so-called anti-war candidate, accepted the endorsement of a man who could have potentially prevented the invasion of Iraq if he had only stood up to the Shrub...but hey he's a general and former Secretary of State so if someone else wants to prop up the Illinois Sock Puppet Pampers isn't going to say no).  Now we have Bernanke cheerleading this (insert adjective here).  I suppose the asshat is looking to keep his job...because, like Shrub's pal "Brownie," he's doing a heckuva job. valve!!!

Ben, your sanity is not up to scratch.  Here's why asshat: 

My friends, as I said in my last post, people are starting to feel the dread set in.  I say fuck that! That dread is completely artificial, created by the media and pollsters to suppress our votes. This is not the primaries Pampers.  The silent majority is getting more and more pissed at you by the day.  I smell blood in the water.

My friends, I want you to plug in your speakers, strip down to your underwear (or even further), crank this as loud as you can, tap into your inner party animal and boogie your dread away because, by god, I sure as hell ain't gonna let the Sock Puppet who cried wolf and his cast of idiots get me down.  Come along and take that's all right!

Saying NO is Your God Given Right. You Do Not Walk Alone

As election day draws closer I feel a great deal of anxiety falling across the American collective unconscious. Expectation is mixing with trepidation. Dread, deep seeded feelings of dread. Which side will win? What will we lose? What do I do? I get calls and emails from people seeking my advice, needing to vent, wondering what is going to happen. I make the same inquiries of others. Democrats and Democrat leaning independents, many of whom have never voted for a Republican in their lives (such as myself), have been asking these questions more than most I suspect. Can't say that I blame them. Liberty and democracy have taken quite a beating from the Democrat Party this year, so much so that I find it difficult to leave the "ic" in the party's name as democratic is the last thing the party has been in 2008. Still, despite all their misgivings about the Democrat Party nominee, many are afraid to make the break and own their vote, casting it against, or withholding it from him. On finding clarity of judgement I suggest that those of you out there that find yourselves in this difficult place take some advice from someone far more wise on such matters than I; John Adams.

Adams was a true believer in the American experiment. He was its conscience, its soul. To Adams, human liberty was so essential (despite the tarring he received by history for signing the Alien and Sedition Acts; the writing and Congressional passage of which he did not request), he moved to help create a nation whose highest purpose was the fostering and protection of that liberty.

Keep the words of President Adams in mind as you consider what to do with your vote on November 4th.

Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have... a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean the characters and conduct of their rulers.

As a human being, not simply as an American, but as a human being you deserve to know who your leaders are, where they come from, whom they associate with, and what they believe. Senator Obama has been less than candid. He has obfuscated and obscured his past. Do you know his GPA from college? Neither do I. He hasn't released his transcripts. He has lied again and again regarding his associations with Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, ACORN, and Tony Rezko. And even when he gets caught in his lies, he continues to tell them. Senator Obama has denied us our indefeasible right to know even the most basic information about these matters.

Society's demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases.

The aforementioned questions about Senator Obama's life should have been made public when he ran for the Illinois State Legislature, State Senate, and United States Senate. Certainly now when he aspires to highest office in the land that information is essential. It has been denied, and says much regarding his lack of character, as does his treatment of the people whose lives he wishes to affect. He has called the working class racist, bitter, clinging, and has publicly mocked them as he has mocked Joe the Plumber. It is inexcusable that a man who would be our President disdainfully mocks the men and women who are the backbone of this country.  

The constant and inappropriate sexist and misogynistic remarks hurled at Senator Clinton from the candidate, his campaign, and his surrogates during the primaries are yet another mark against him which, with puny exception from his party, went unchallenged.  

He has exposed his elitism, sexism, and his bigotry. He has proven his lack of moral authority on more occasions than I care to count. This is a man who would not be able to get even the most basic government security clearance due to his associations with known terrorists.  As President he would have access to nuclear launch codes, and entrance to the Situation Room. He has not even disclosed his real birth certificate, and yet expects us to trust him with our nation's security and prosperity.  It is shocking and disgraceful.  The fact that the Democrat Party nominated him is as glaring a sign of its corruption as his actions are of his.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.

If elected President Senator Obama would have the power to declare martial law by Executive Order. This is a man who has used police, sheriffs and prosecutors in the state of Missouri in "truth squads" to attempt to stifle the broadcasting of advertisements that oppose his candidacy. Senator Obama is using these officials to violate the constitutional rights of American citizens simply as a candidate for President. 

He voted for the FISA bill this past summer, after publicly stating that he would lead the filibuster against it, legitimating George W. Bush's warrantless wiretapping scheme, further eroding our right to privacy.  

He allowed his party and supporters to prevent the lawful assembly of Senator Clinton's pledged delegates during the Democratic National Convention so that they could not organize and collect the 800 signatures of petition required to demand a full, open, and complete roll call from the convention floor.  Had this happened I doubt he would be the Democrat Party's nominee.  Rather than support democratic process he allowed it to be subverted for his own gain.  

If he is willing to do these things as a candidate, I have no doubt that he would be more than willing to use his presidential powers to stifle any and all dissent. I do not trust Senator Obama to preserve our liberties as President.

The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.

Again, Senator Obama and his campaign are guilty of all three. He has suppressed these rights on his own website. Voices of dissent against his policy positions are purged. Supporters of the candidate have had their accounts shut down, shrouded due to their opposition to his stances and actions. He has tried to alter our speech, and make us afraid to speak out of fear that we will be tarred as racists. He has done so with Bill and Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and anyone else willing to stand up to him. When videos of him proclaiming his National Civilian Security Force are circulated his minions attempt to delete them. His minions have tried to hack into and shut down blogs. Senator Obama is more than willing to destroy our freedoms to serve his purpose. His candidacy is an immediate threat to our way of life, and our dearest freedoms.  I shudder to think what he is capable of as President.

If you are a Democrat, or Democrat leaning independent who desires to stand against Senator Obama you are not alone. Go to the blog roll here and you will find pathways to millions of people who are refusing to vote for Senator Obama. Whether it is for his and the DNC's destruction of democratic process, the quelling of dissent, the suppression of our constitutional rights, or his lying about his associations, you do not owe him any allegiance in thought, word, or deed. Your vote is your own. Use it as you will. And remember the words of President Adams. This is your country. These are your freedoms. Your vote is your own and no one else's. Most importantly, you are not alone. It is your God given human right to stand with us and say NO!

There are other voices among us with words of encouragement in these trying times. I urge you visit them and take heart.

Sky Dancing in a Man's World

19 October 2008


It's not that Pampers is an out of touch, Hyde Park elitist, armchair socialist, power hungry asshat.  It's that he genuinely despises the working class.  Any blue collar worker who votes for this jackass is truly a fool.  Pampers doesn't care about your dreams and aspirations.  Pampers doesn't care if you live or die.  The only thing you have that Pampers cares about is your income, and your vote.  As he told Ed Rendell earlier this summer, "We don't need the people, we just need the checks."

Is it any surprise then that Pampers goes on the campaign trail and mocks the fact that John McCain is out fighting for people like Joe the Plumber, and in the same breath mocks Joe and guys like him, mocking who they are, their dreams and aspirations?  Wasn't Pampers the guy who said he wanted an America that would protect our dreams and aspirations?  Only as long as our dream is fulfilling his dreams and his aspirations.  Screw you.


Pampers is so out of touch, eating steamed lobster at the Waldorf Astoria, that he doesn't even grasp the economics of the working class. He doesn't know any plumbers who make a quarter of a million dollars? He doesn't know any plumbers period.  Who exactly does he think owns small plumbing companies, and large ones for that matter, Warren Buffet?  No, plumbers you assface!  

If a candidate for President isn't fighting for the working men and women of this country, then who exactly are they supposed to be fighting for?  If you're Senator Pampers that would be white billionaires in San Francisco, because after all, they're going through some hard times.

And all the working class folks out there who build our homes, plumb, pave our streets, keep the electricity and water flowing to our homes, well...Pampers says you're just a bunch of bitter, bible thumping, gun toting racists who can go fuck themselves.  While he kicks back in his Hyde Park mansion, dreaming of being your Fuhrer, you just go ahead and dig his ditches.

Any working man or woman who votes for Barack Pampers Obama is fool.  By the way, that tax cut he's promising know that's only $500 right?  Geebus, even George W Shrub gave us more than that.  If you've got kids McCain will give you a much bigger tax credit.  If not, you're ttaxes will stay the same.  I have to say this; though Shrub absolutely may be the worst President  we've ever had, my standard deduction rocks.   Has Pampers said that he won't let the middle class tax cut expire if he gets elected?  Funny I never heard him mention that in the debates.

One candidate is fighting for the working men and women of this country.  One man is making fun of that guy for doing so.  I know who I would vote for.

The Real Fraud (Update)

Turns out that this story was untrue, and the Post reporter that ran it apologized, but if you look at the rate of Pampers' spending (currently being reported at No Quarter), the spending spree pattern remains true.  Instead of lobster it's campaign decadence.

Mr. Redistribute the Wealth tells Joe the Plumber that if he buys the business he works for, and moves into the "wealthy" tax bracket, he must give up his hard earned money to help people who don't work for what they have.  Does Pampers live by example?  When he addresses the Al Smith dinner, playing on the heartstrings of the political and media elite by talking about the poor beyond the walls of the hotel hosting them, does he make his case by practicing what he preaches?  You need only look at Mrs. Pampers' receipt from their stay at the Waldorf Astoria while they were in town for the Al Smith Dinner to find the answer.

Did he redistribute the wealth when he bought his Hyde Park mansion to his impoverished relatives in Kenya?  Nope.

Mr. and Mrs. Pampers, you are a couple of hypocritical douchebags.  God help us all if you asshats get in the White House.

Looks like the folks at Native Americans Against Obama are thinking the same thing.

My colleague in Italy has pointed out that the receipt image is most likely fake, but we agree that the story that ran in the New York Post was accurate.  As my teachers used to insist, it always helps to have a visual aid to get your point across.  For the record, the team of elves at valve did not generate this image, but considered it illustrative.  I still find it appropriate to use it even if it is fake.  The candidate certainly is after all.

The Tree of Peace

For over two centuries Americans have prided themselves over the document that serves as the basis of our nation's republic; the Constitution of the United States of America.  Conceived in wake of the initiation of the greatest social contract in the history of Western society, America's founding principle is that each of us (certainly it has taken a while to fully define the "us," but that's another post) possesses the unalienable human right to liberty; the freedom to live one's life as they see fit, provided that the individual does not trod upon the liberty and rights of another individual.  It was, and is like nothing ever Western society.  Here in North America there exists the longest standing participatory democracy on earth, but it is not the United States.  It is the Six Nation Confederacy of the Haudenesaunee (you know it as the Iroquois Confederacy).

At least 200 years before the Declaration of Independence was written and signed, this confederacy was created for the mutual defense and peace of its members.  The Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, Mohawk, and Cayuga comprised the original confederacy founded sometime in the 1570's (by the estimates of European calendars), with the Tuscarora migrating to what is now New York State in the 1700's.  The final Tuscarora migration ended in 1803.

It was the Great Peacemaker, Deganawida, who brought the nations together under the Gayanashagowa, the Great Law of Peace, the Haudenesaunee constitution symbolized by the White Tree of Peace.  Many legends are told, but it is commonly held that his first disciple was Hiawatha.  His vision that peace would come through a uniting of the nations drove him to bring the confederacy together.  Essentially the premise of the Confederacy's structure is that each nation remained autonomous in its own local affairs, with a great council holding sway over the affairs pertaining to the Confederacy as a whole; to put it in familiar terms to, "...establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare..."  I would argue that in many ways the Haudenesaunee Confederacy is more closely related to the Articles of Confederation in that the Articles clearly held up the states as totally autonomous entities, but there is no doubt that the Confederacy structure played a part in the creation of the Articles, as well as the Constitution.  It also seems that they have formed a more perfect union.  I believe there are two central reasons for this.  Firstly, it is a participatory democracy, whereas ours is a representative democracy.  Secondly, from the outset the governing structure of the Confederacy was egalitarian.

There is no Chief Executive, but a Great Council of Sachems.  There are 50 Sachems, each equal in power.  The Sachems and the Chiefs of their respective tribes comprise the tribal councils. Unlike our Congress,  the Great Council cannot even convene itself.  It is convened by the Councils of individual tribes, and unanimity holds sway over all decisions.  Each tribe has the ability to veto the others.  A General Council is open to all to address, with the final decisions being made by the Great Council.

From the outset, women of the Confederacy held real power.  It is the women who hold the power to approve or reject a declaration of war.  Clans are matrilineal.  It is also the clan mothers who choose the members of the Great Council of Sachems.  Any leader who does not abide by the wishes of the women, and the Great Law of Peace, can be removed by the clan mothers.  In other words, LISTEN TO THE WOMEN!

Their democracy hears the voice of all the people.  Their democracy endures.

Here in the United States the Supreme Court has struck down the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals decision compelling the Ohio Secretary of State to identify 200,000 voter registrations that might not be in compliance, or completely fraudulent to the state's 88 counties.  Protecting the voter registration/voter fraud scheme of the Obama campaign through its grassroots surrogates at ACORN, the Supreme Court, one of the three branches of our government as created by our nation's constitution, has failed to protect and defend that constitution.  The Constitution protects the rights of legal citizens to vote, not Mickey Mouse.

Federal Justices swear two oaths when they assume office:

 I, (state your name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as ^^^  under the Constitution and laws of the United States.  So help me God.

I, (state your name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

When the Supreme Court of the United States allows a state official to conceal possible voter registration/voter fraud I say that it is acting in violation of that oath.

To whom now do we turn to protect our rights?  The Executive Branch that is currently overseeing a regime of warrantless wire tapping?  The Congress that voted to sanction said regime while simultaneously granting retroactive immunity to the telecom companies that allowed the government to execute the scheme, or the Supreme Court that is going to allow the Democrat Party in Ohio to violate the sanctity of the franchise of the citizens of Ohio?

My friends, at this moment we are without a legitimate constitutional body of governance.  In Lockian terms, the government of the United States has violated the social contract between itself and the citizens of the United States.  Perhaps the time has come at last for the convening of a Constitutional Convention to democratically dissolve the current Legislature, Executive, and Judicial branches and fill these posts with Americans who take their oath of office seriously or, if need be, construct a new body of governance that is more participatory, and egalitarian than that which we have now, and will more ethically and democratically ensure our Safety and Happiness.

I love this country.  It took in my family in the early half of the 20th century, sheltering us from the persecution of government sanctioned anti-semitism, allowing us to stake our claim to the American dream.  We are doctors, lawyers, teachers, entrepreneurs, and caring citizens.  We have served in the military at home and abroad, as well as the Civilian Defense Corps during World War II.  We have been active participants in this democracy.  We cherish it, and the freedom it represents.

Is our society perfect?  Far from it.  Look at the vast array of abuses its power brokers engage in, from political parties that subvert democracy, to rabid socialists that would steal the very personal freedoms on which this country was founded in the name of enforced equity.  If you're reading this Messrs Ayers, Rathke, and Obama; I don't trust you to redistribute the wealth equitably any more than I trust Tony Rezko to properly maintain a low income housing development.  My incredulity at the thought of well healed residents of Hyde Park overseeing economic justice in America knows no bounds.  We've seen what people like you have brought; a dictatorship of the proletariat that simply becomes dictatorship without end. 

Your pathetic first attempt at revolution failed.  It will fail again.  The desire for freedom trumps all.  Do we all want a more just society?  I think you might be surprised at how many people will say yes.  Instead of attempting to force it on us with Alinsky tactics, why not live by real example?  Oh wait, that would mean operating under some kind of system of morality which you feel you do not need to possess because "the man" is so evil.

Mr. Ayers, I've heard tell that you have a picture of Malcolm X on your door.  How sad and pathetic that you were too stoned in the 60's to understand his evolution.  You are a sad little man who wants revolution for the sole purpose of leading it.  You don't care about economic or social justice.  If you did you wouldn't be backing a man like Obama who has never stood for justice in his life.  Just ask the residents of his contributors' rat hole developments in Chicago that he claims he knew nothing about.  You just want to be the new generation of pigs that slop at the trough.  We have enough problems with the ones that are already there.  We don't need to be feeding you and your pigs too.

My friends we are facing a constitutional crisis as we do not have a government that operates in accordance with the social contract laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.  I do not doubt that the Haudenesaunee Confederacy and Constitution will continue to endure as it has for more than four centuries. I wish I could say the same for ours.

Land of the Free, Home of the Stupid Idiots

These must be the Pamperbots who kept telling us that we had to vote for The Waffle because we care about reproductive rights, Roe v Wade, and ABORTION! ABORTION! ABORTION!

Well, it is a free country, sort of.  You have the unalienable right to make complete asses out of yourselves.  I'm sure Steinem and Quinn wept tears of ecstatic joy when they saw these photos.

Quite frankly you dingdongs make this far too easy.

Secretary of State Brunner: Eat My Shorts

Looks like fascism was dealt a severe blow in Ohio yesterday when the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a system of verification must be set up to validate all new voter registrations. According to AP Secretary Brunner said that there was nothing in the federal Help America Vote Act that compelled her to do what the district court ordered.  You don't like it?  Take it to the Supreme Court lady.  Good luck with that.

In the meantime, I suggest that everyone who believes in democracy, regardless of your party, contact Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, asking him to submit articles of impeachment in the Ohio legislature to have Secretary Brunner removed from office.  Her tenure is a blight, a stain on American democracy.  I recommend faxes.  Lots and lots of faxes.

Well Shut My Mouth and Call Me Stinky!

I know lots of folks have been talking about this but...I can't help but notice that Pampers is now touting the 90 day mortgage foreclosure moratorium.  I really liked that idea back in the spring, when it was Senator Clinton's idea (actually, we are so far beyond the 90 day thing; that plan is wholly and totally worthless...but thanks for throwing a drowning family an anvil Pampers).
Yes are a buttface.

Now we're hearing that even though he called Clinton's plan "disastrous" his plan is much better. He was against Clinton's plan because she called for an interest rate freeze.  Apparently he didn't like that.  But isn't this the same Pampers who said he didn't like McCain's mortgage buyout plan because it would reward corrupt lenders?

Pampers...wouldn't allowing interest rates to go up on an adjustable rate mortgage, that you know doubt call "predatory," (at least in public) also be rewarding the lenders and not helping homeowners who got screwed by the supposed predatory lenders?  Say yes Pampers.

You really are a sick Alinsky bastard.

The Berg Suit

Much has been made about Phil Berg's suit in Philadelphia District Court.  So far the case has been seen to have merit, though it has not yet ruled on Pamper's motion to dismiss (a motion actually made by the DNC because as we all know Pampers doesn't fight his own battles).

This is the new film from Illuminati where Berg explains his case against Senator Pampers.  At this point I want to stress that if this suit goes forward and Pampers is found to be constitutionally ineligible to be President of the United States I will do a big time happy dance.  But at this point I think it's important for us to concentrate on the more important issue at hand; the rampant voter fraud being planned by Pampers and his bag of assorted nuts at ACORN.  But since many people have been wondering what the hell this Berg suit is about, here is the manaplanacanalpanama Phillip J. Berg......take it away!

Now Berg makes an excellent case.  Obviously there must be something to it or the case would have been declared without merit and that would be the end of it.  I know there are many people who get tingles up their leg at the thought of this actually going to trial, I know I do because the enforcement of the Constitution, and protection of liberty rocks.  But I think we can safely assume that the Pampers legal team has their own bag of tricks.  After doing some digging I was able to get some video of the Pampers defense strategy...yet another valve! exclusive.

And this is for all you Francophiles out there.

Hell, the Pampers campaign double speak makes about as much sense.

We Are All Related

Today is a federally mandated holiday to honor a mass murderer and slave trader.  Instead of remembering him, remember the Oglala Lakota of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.  Pine Ridge is the poorest county in America.  If it were not for AIDS deaths in Africa it would have the lowest life expectancy in the world.  It is a continuing disgrace that this goes on in America.  So do something about it.

Watch this:

Look under "Donation Drives" and "PRR Organizations" and see what you can do to help.  Start a drive at your place of business, your school, your neighborhood.  Do what you can.

We are all related.

Well, How Did We Get Here?...or The Real Obama Agenda

At the outset I must thank Ms Placed Democrat's Renaissancelady 48 and Eastan McNeal at No Quarter for their exhaustive research, love of country, and wise council.

How did we get here? How is it that "subprime mortgages" have brought us to the brink of economic collapse? Most people believe it is due to the predatory lending practices of financial institutions. That is the lie you have been sold. The truth is far more insidious. We are in fact on the brink of economic disaster because of the people who have sent Barack Obama.

In order to understand how this happened we must begin with Saul Alinsky , the radical socialist who, after spending a great deal of time with the Al Capone crime family in Chicago, realized that the same shakedown tactics used by the mob to extort business, and control politicians, could be used by activists to shakedown banks and political institutions to advance a socialist agenda. These were tactics utilized by groups like ACORN, in an effort to lobby the government to pass laws that forced lending institutions to issue mortgages to low income/"at risk" borrowers who often had no way of paying the money back.

But ACORN members probably did not lobby for these laws to bring down our economy, at least not knowingly. I believe that, apart from the leaders at the top, rank and file ACORN members legitimately believed they were fighting for low-income housing. But ACORN's backers were simply using Alinsky's method (never reveal your real agenda) to serve their own purposes. Who are these people? You know the names of two of them: Bill Ayers and Barack Obama. I suspect that they are more front men than anything else, though who knows who Ayers was with while he was in hiding?

Where did ACORN get the funds to engage in the widespread lobbying (read extortion) that allowed them to shakedown lenders and politicians? From the money diverted to them by Bill Ayers and Barack Obama, via the Chicago Annenberg Challenge , and the Woods Fund, as well as with your tax dollars allocated by Congressional Democrats; the same Congressional Democrats that have received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Freddie and Fannie in the form of campaign contributions ; the same Congressional Democrats that ignored Republican calls for the regulating and reform of Freddie and Fannie--the institutions that took subprime mortgages, bundled them, and infected financial institutions worldwide...all in the name of granting minorities and low income families access to housing (always the trouble begins with the most honorable of intentions, or at least it is made to seem so), but with the Leftists' hidden purpose of initiating a worldwide economic collapse.  All of it accomplished with ACORN as the muscle.

The root of the problem lies with the Community Reinvestment Act. The CRA was passed in 1977 and, according to Thomas J. DiLorenzo,
"compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria."
DiLorenzo goes on to explain:
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
A man named Bruce Marks became quite notorious during the last decade for pressuring banks to earmark literally billions of dollars to his organization, the "Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America." He once boasted to the New York Times that he had "won" loan commitments totaling $3.8 billion from Bank of America, First Union Corporation, and the Fleet Financial Group. And that is just one "community group" operating in one city – Boston.
Banks have been placed in a Catch 22 situation by the CRA: If they comply, they know they will have to suffer from more loan defaults. If they don't comply, they face financial penalties and, worse yet, their business plans for mergers, branch expansions, etc. can be blocked by CRA protesters, which can cost a large corporation like Bank of America billions of dollars. Like most businesses, they have largely buckled under and have surrendered to their bureaucratic masters.
Consequently, banks in every community in America have been forced to hold a portfolio of bad loans, euphemistically referred to as "subprime" loans. In order to compensate themselves for the added risk of extending these loans, many lenders have increased the lending fees associated with mortgage loans. This is simply an indirect way of doing what banks always do – and what they must do to remain solvent: charging effectively higher rates of interest on riskier loans.
But this is discriminatory!, complained the "community organizations." Thus, if one browses the ACORN web site, one can read of their boasts of having "predatory lending laws" passed in numerous states which outlaw such fees, prohibiting banks from protecting themselves from the added risk involved in making forced loans to "subprime" borrowers.
According to the Consumer Rights League :
• ACORN leveraged the Community Reinvestment Act in order to
attack lenders' reputations and secure financial resources for itself;
it has also endorsed loans offered by companies that fund ACORN
• ACORN's decades of lobbying and publicity seeking have contributed
to the current housing crisis by lowering lending standards
• Despite raking in a troubling 40 percent of its revenue from taxpayers
over the last three years, ACORN Housing Corporation's actions
range from controversial to borderline illegal:
• AHC has worked to obtain mortgages for undocumented
• AHC relies on undocumented income, "under the table" money
that may not be reported to the Internal Revenue Service
• ACORN's "financial justice" operations attack lenders for "exotic"
loans, but AHC has recommended ten-year interest-only
loans (which deny equity to the buyer) and reverse mortgages
(which can be detrimental to senior citizens)
• AHC may have violated federal law by failing to maintain a
proper distinction between its tax-exempt housing work and
the aggressive political activities of ACORN.
CRL goes on to report:
To understand the current subprime credit mess is to glimpse a world in which a politically active organization with a non-profit housing arm reaps millions of dollars through "rent seeking" or manipulation of favorable laws. ACORN and its non-profit housing arm have taken in millions of taxpayer and corporate dollars by abusing a three-decade-old law intended to help the poor obtain housing. For decades, the activist organization known as ACORN has grabbed headlines—and cash—by attacking mortgage lenders in the name of citizens' rights. Considerably less attention has been paid to the amount of taxpayer money that funds ACORN Housing Corporation (AHC) and to the financial rewards ACORN has amassed.
But from whom did ACORN learn these Alinsky tactics? In part, from Barack Obama.

As I said earlier, I believe rank and file ACORN members legitimately believe they are lobbying for minority and low income housing, unknowingly advancing a larger agenda to destroy our economic and financial institutions. But how has the cabal managed to infect the credit market worldwide? Let's ask Penny Pritzker, Barack Obama's campaign finance chair.

It is now well documented that Pritzker was one of the driving forces behind the subprime mortgage fiasco, unleashing toxic loans into the market like a financial Typhoid Mary. Her bank, Superior, was the first to go under, and yet she made millions.

From Dennis Bernstein's report:
Though Superior Bank collapsed years before the current sub-prime turmoil that is rocking the world's financial markets – and pushing those millions of homeowners toward foreclosure – some banking experts say the Pritzkers and Superior hold a special place in the history of the sub-prime fiasco.
"The [sub-prime] financial engineering that created the Wall Street meltdown was developed by the Pritzkers and Ernst and Young, working with Merrill Lynch to sell bonds securitized by sub-prime mortgages," Timothy J. Anderson, a whistleblower on financial and bank fraud, told me in an interview.
"The sub-prime mortgages," Anderson said, "were provided to Merrill Lynch, by a nation-wide Pritzker origination system, using Superior as the cash cow, with many millions in FDIC insured deposits. Superior's owners were to sub-prime lending, what Michael Milken was to junk bonds."
In other words, if you traced today's sub-prime crisis back to its origins, you would come upon the role of the Pritzkers and Superior Bank of Chicago.
Only a fool would believe that it is a coincidence that a man who helped train ACORN in the use of Alinsky tactics, and with Bill Ayers helped fund ACORN, selected the originator of the subprime mortgage vehicle that is destroying our economy to be his campaign finance chair.

But what was the lightbulb moment? What was the missing piece of the puzzle? It didn't start falling into place for me until John McCain announced his mortgage rescue plan at the second Presidential debate. Inspired by Hillary Clinton's editorial in the Wall Street Journal, McCain is advancing what is essentially FDR's Home Owners Loan Corporation idea that kept millions of Americans in their homes. It is a proven plan for success. But Obama rejects it. Not only does he reject it, but he does so based on conservative talking points, namely that McCain's plan would reward institutions' unethical practices; practices that banks were forced to adopt because of ACORN's coercive lobbying efforts, the passage of the CRA, and a mortgage vehicle essentially invented by his campaign finance chair. But in this rejection Obama strays from his usual modus operandi.

As we saw in the primaries, when the opposition issues a plan, Obama waits a few days and then announces the same plan. The media praises him and everyone genuflects. The most notable example of this was when Senator Clinton advocated a multibillion dollar stimulus package in the spring. One week later Obama released a virtually identical plan. Not so this time. 

Not only has Obama rejected a plan originally put forward by a Democratic President, he has offered no solution of his own. Why? Because Barack Obama needs economic turmoil to get into office. It is the one thing that has opened any polling advantage for Obama in the election. And once in office the nationalization of our banking system will be easily executed. Treasury Secretary Paulson is already laying the groundwork by advocating the government purchase of bank stock. Once in control of America's financial institutions it would be very easy, under the guise of halting the current economic crisis, to completely nationalize American banks and begin a widespread socialist wealth redistribution program which has been part of the Ayers/Obama agenda since the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.  Crazy?  Here's what Ayers said at an education forum in Venezuela, in the presence of Hugo Chavez:
"the political educational reforms under way here in Venezuela under the leadership of President Chavez. We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution. . . ."

"Teaching invites transformations, it urges revolutions large and small. La educacion es revolucion."
Read what Jon Markman has to say on the ramifications of Obama's economic and tax policies.  And take a look at a recent survey of CEOs. These people are very concerned with job creation. They require a President whose policies will allow them, in a weakened economy, to generate the jobs that will put Americans back to work, and drive the economic engine forward. Not only do they feel that McCain's policies will allow them to generate those jobs, they overwhelmingly fear an Obama presidency. CEOs know what any fool should know; government does not create jobs (the lie that Obama tells us), companies and corporations create jobs; in a capitalist society.

And consider what is happening between Great Britain and Iceland.  Interesting that British banks, that ended up being bought up by Iceland, secretly held ACORN assets.  It's a new world order after all.  Eastan McNeal goes on to explain:
The first step toward ensuring that the goal of everyone equally owning everything is to first make sure that nobody owns anything. The only path to a functioning socialist democracy is through a temporary trip through a communist demise. In other words, every corporation and entrepreneur must be eliminated and their personal empires destroyed and turned over to the single payer-payee government larges before the collective wealth of the world can be redistributed and shared equally with and for all.
Obama is using home foreclosures, job loss, and economic collapse as a means of gaining power for himself and his backers; the most prominent, and the one who stands to gain the most, George Soros, makes money in part by destablizing foreign currencies as he did in Thailand in 1997.  Obama wants to win the White House on the back of your suffering while George Soros stands to make a killing.  The end result?  A socialist takeover of financial institutions to effect a redistribution of wealth in any mode they please.  

Do you trust a man who bought a $1.3 million mansion, with the help of a convicted felon, to equally redistribute the world's wealth?  Would you trust a man who gained his party's nomination through voter suppression and intimidation, and who voted to continue a regime of warrantless wire tapping, to preserve democracy?  No, me neither.  That's not leadership.  That's not change we can believe in.

Oh, and check out the freshman Senator from Illinois promising that ACORN will help him set his presidential agenda:

There is only one sure thing standing in the way of a Leftist takeover of our financial institutions, and possibly the ending of democracy as we know it; electing John McCain President of the United States on November 4th.

Speaking of Obama and ACORN, it's about time the McCain campaign spoke up about what we've been saying for months:

Sing it Kermit!
